This handstamped Navajo Sterling Silver and Turquoise Hummingbird Pin captures the silhouette of a hummingbird in flight, carrying a turquoise cabochon at its feet. Navajo legend tells that it's the industrious hummingbird who taught the Diné how to gather pollen. These tiny birds are also fierce fighters that defend their territory, qualities that have earned respect from the Indigenous community.
This jewelry item comes packaged in a white box (pictured).
